Getting his start in Frederickburg, VA, Cane, commonly known as the Don Draper of rap, has built serious momentum over the past year. After his fans turned out in support of his race to open for DC’s ill-fated Rock the Bells, those in the industry began to take notice. At the top of 2014, Cane appeared on MTV’s RapFix Live as a part of their Get in the Game segment. With Joey Bada$$, Pro Era, and Sway in the studio, he received enormous praise for his visual “Grassroots Tangent.”
During his appearance, Cane caught the ear of Statik Selektah, which eventually led to their collaboration, “Get Down,” a bonus track on Cane’s latest LP, Citizen Cane. Keeping up with the buzz, Cane made his debut performance at SXSW and performed at the first of many shows in NYC, including hot spot venues like Webster Hall and SOBs.
In 2014, Cane released his mixtape Charles St. Chi, followed by his full-length original album, Citizen Cane. In between, the DMV rhymesayer kept fans satiated with a string of releases ranging from original cuts to instrumental takeovers. Gaining the attention of coveted sites such as XXL, The Source, 2DBZ, theSTASHED, Cane has become a prominent fixture in DMV rap.

> Awthentik is by far not your typical emcee. Writing, Producing, Recording, Mixing and Mastering every track on his latest release Popular Misconception took him only 2 months to put together. Hailing from right outside of the nations capital, Awthentik brings a fresh approach with a recognizable flavor from the "Golden Era" of hiphop. Drum Samplers, records, vintage synthesizers and miscellaneous grit make up the sound from the basement of Maryland based Raper/ Producer Awthentik. "The Beautiful thing about being a producer is the availability to record a particular sound is infinite. You can never run out" says Awthentik. Awthentik is a studio junkie. He has worked with the likes of Dead Prez, Ras Kass, Freeway and performed with the likes of Bun B, Joey Bada$$, Big KRIT, Elzhi and T3 of Slum Village, 9th Wonder, and Stalley to name drop a couple of household names. Awthentik's musical inspiration to make music comes from the late great J Dilla.
